UNBELIEVABLE! Pot Of Gold Coins Hidden 900 Years Ago Found Intact

Rare gold coins and a golden earring have been discovered in the ancient Mediterranean port of Caesarea in northern Israel – possibly left and never recovered as Crusaders conquered the city 900 years ago.
The Israel Antiquities Authority announced the find on Monday of a small bronze pot holding 24 gold coins and the earring.
The cache containing gold coins that was discovered at the port of Caesarea, Israel. The coins in the cache dating to the end of the eleventh century, make it possible to link the treasure to the Crusader conquest of the city in the year 1101.
According to the authority, it was found between two stones in the side of a well in a house in a neighbourhood that dates back some 900 years, during the Abbasid and Fatimid periods.
The directors of the excavation, the IAA’s Peter Gendelman and Mohammed Hatar, said the coins in the cache date to the end of the 11th century.

That makes it possible ‘to link the treasure to the Crusader conquest of the city in the year 1101, one of the most dramatic events in the medieval history of the city’, an IAA statement said.
According to the Antiquities Authority, most inhabitants of the city were massacred by Baldwin I’s army between 1100 to 1118 CE.

Baldwin I served as the king of the Crusader kingdom of Jerusalem.
The authority said it can be presumed that the treasure’s owner and his family likely died in the massacre or were sold into slavery.

The bronze pot in which the trove was held for the past millennium, which is itself a valuable item, was secreted between stones in a 1.5 meter-deep well.
Archaeologists think the pot of gold was stashed as invaders ransacked the city, some 900 years ago.
How much do you think these found pieces are worth?
